    I laughed out loud at this hahahaha. I could only imagine how savage that must be coming from a 12 year old on a bicycle.

    Perhaps to answer the OPs question, there is no such thing as a 4 door that looks better than its 2 door counterpart. There are good looking 4 doors, but not that good.

    The flat-top GM's of 59 & 60 were pretty snazzy. But for the most part, nope. :cool:

    My parents switched to two-door from four-door after my oldest sister almost fell out of the car when the back door opened going around a tight curve. Good thing the latches on doors have improved.

    Really depends on the car itself, the paint, wheels/tires, and a bunch of other variables, including the owner/driver. Used to be, I did't care for 4 doors at all, then it got to where I tolerated them. Then, I started to dislike them again, and then came around to them again. Now, there are some I'd specifically like in a 4 door, like my OT, drag/"old man's car". But, no matter what, they ALL have to be rather "plain Jane"! I am Butch/56sedandelivery.

    Those '49-52 Chevrolet 4door Fleetlines were neat.

    I wonder how many four (4) door cars would better as a two (2) door car.

    Hello,

    Our dad was a Buick fanatic. There were no other cars he ever considered from 1941 to his last Buick in 1982. As my brother and I were the backseat occupants, it was always a 4 door sedan for our daily drivers and long distance road trips. By the time several 2 door wagons came on the scene, Nomads in particular, we wanted our dad to get one. But, he did not like those Chevrolet products, other than our 58 Impala later in 1957. So, during the time, he always wanted a 4 door Buick sedan.

    Then in 1957, he drove up with a blue 2 door Roadmaster sedan and was happy his car looked a little sporty, as big Buicks could.

    But, as the two brothers got bigger, we needed something cool that was larger for us in the back seat and have room for our surf stuff and camping gear. A 58 Impala was not going to cut it, so our choices were something cool with 4 doors. Yeow, 4 doors? Well, a few minor modifications and the cool looking 4 door could turn into a nice two door looking cruiser.

    Having liked 2 doors more than 4 doors, that was a style that will always stay with our history. But, having a son and granddaughter from babies to teens, a 4 door is so much better for access and no tired backs leaning in for securing safety stuff. Now, 4 doors can look like two doors with a little alterations. There are some 4 door designs that actually look better than the factory 2 door designs. YRMV
     
  16. Got to admit, that Caballero is pretty slick, but look at the price. Yikes!

    All of these more doors are pretty cool. I also think the suicide door T-birds are far better looking than their two door brethren.

    I don't have a photo of one but The 1950 Chevy fleet line with all the timings was better looking then it two door brother. It looked longer and lower especially if it has all the sun visors on the side glass.
